Brass Darkly Mirror
The fairest one of all.
Take a good look in this beautiful brass mirror, inspired by a historical exploration of humankind’s earliest mirrors. The designer of this mirror was fascinated with the (unsubstantiated) theory that mirrors may originally have been small ceramic bowls filled with water. This striking hanging mirror recreates that bowl shape in a modern style with high, thin sides encircling the inlaid glass.

Care & Notes
Brass will tarnish over time, especially from handling. To prevent tarnishing, limit contact with your skin, and the oils in your hands can lead to tarnishing.
To clean brass, spray with a foam cleaner designed for metal, and wipe off with a clean, dry towel. Avoid using abrasive cleaners, chemical solvents, strong detergents, or cleaners with bleach.
Mirror has an opening in the back that can be mounted over a screw. Screw is not included.
